Cody Zeller bandwagon

Not sure why this guy isn't getting love over Len.

 

If Zeller develops as a shooter he could be the best offensive player in the draft.  A perimeter jumper combined with his ability to drive the lane from 20+ ft..  he even has the agility to run his man around screens off the ball.  I think his potential is waaaay higher than what hes shown in the college game.

I think this will be a very barren wagon

I think its because he is scrawny with limited post moves that will be effective against bigger stronger nba 5's and isnt athletic enough to play the 4. Len has an nba body, zeller does not and never will.

Yeah, I'm staying as far away from this wagon unless we trade down with Minnesota.

Cody Zellar is going to have to seriously get with a trainer and a nutritionist if he wants to be an NBA player. He's going to get pushed around big time.

I would not draft him with a lottery pick. All the bigs in this draft have question marks and red flags.

Trainer, nutritionist, steroids I don't think it will matter. His frame just isn't there. Same with noel and davis. Guys like that have to have a midrange and outside game and be able to play the four to be effective. I don't think any of them can do it.

I was interested in Gobert until a few GM's came out and said that he is the most unathletic player that they have ever seen lol.

I like Zeller can't say I would take him at four, but he may have the highest floor of the top ten guys.

I was looking at some sites to see what they think Zellers comparison/ceiling is...

 

Cody Zeller: LaMarcus Aldridge

NBADraftNet: LaMarcus Aldridge

WalterFootball: Anderson Varejao

Chad Ford (ESPN): Couldn't think of an NBA comparison

 

I don't see the basis for a comparison to Aldridge, but if he turned into a player like Aldridge and we picked him; I'd be pretty damn happy.

They actually have Bazz compared to Nick Young, which is actually a very solid comparison.
